PM Update: Clear Skies and Warmth Persist
Fantastic Friday; Pretty decent holiday weekend
Like recent days, finding a cloud overhead has been a bit of a task today. Temperatures have risen to the lower 80s across much of the area while a light south wind continues streaming more warmth in. Humidity remains low but slowly rising. Evening promises to deliver yet again for those headed outside.
Tonight: The slow increase in nighttime temperatures continues as do clear skies. Readings dipping below 70 after sunset will drop to lows in the mid-50s for outlying suburbs while downtown D.C. falls to the low-60s.
Tomorrow (Friday): We crank up the warmth another notch Friday as the holiday weekend exodus begins in earnest. If you like sunny skies, you'll be in luck again. Highs should rise to the mid-80s most spots, with a few upper 80s possible.
Hurricane Season: As mentioned Tuesday, hurricane season is right around the corner. Today, NOAA released its hurricane outlook, calling for a near-average season. NOAA expects between nine and 14 named storms, with four to seven becoming hurricanes. One factor expected to put a cap on numbers is a developing El Niño, also mentioned in our summer outlook. Check out a Washington Post video from the briefing:
